Always a great place to grab a bite. Service is always good, depending on crowd, sometimes takes a bit longer to get food, but that is typical for any restaurant.

The Thanksgiving dinner was a bit pricy for what we received. Could have charged $30 and still made a decent profit.

Huge disappointment from previous Thanksgiving meal at this location. Plating was awful. Food was just slopped onto the plate in one gooey mess, like it was a serving of leftovers. Turkey serving was shreds of dark meat that looked like it had been pulled straight off the bone. Prime rib serving was half fat. Portions of green bean and mashed potato sides were miniscule. Too much dressing included with turkey. Food didn't have much seasoning either. Horseradish and au jus were supposed to be included with the prime rib but they were not supplied. Second helping of bread was brought to table without being asked for. Dessert portions were too large. Server was soft spoken and too passive. Didn't even ask if we needed takeout boxes. Definitely not worth the $39 price tag. May look elsewhere for next year's holiday meal. Have eaten numerous regular meals at this location of much better quality.

We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner very much. Food was plentiful and well prepared. Service was prompt and courteous. The only reason for only 4 stars on the food, it was quite salty. I noted many elderly diners; I expect salt is a concern for many.

Went for Thanksgiving. Who complains about portions being too large? That would be me. I could see into the kitchen from where i was sitting and unfortunately watched plates of food being scraped into the trashcan.

Our waiter gave us compostable togo containers which were not good for sloppy green-bean casserole.

The prime-rib was well done. Come on now.

I made reservations for Thanksgiving with some trepidation. My husband of 47 years has only eaten out on Thanksgiving 2 times. He has been unhappy both times. But, our family was not going to be home this year and he recently had shoulder surgery and would not be a lot of help in preparation.
SOOO, I told him I had made reservations at Hereford House, one of our all time favorite restaurants!
AND, the turkey was DELICIOUS - moist and tender. The sides were delicious. I typically do not like cornbread, but the dressing was delicious! Many thanks for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner1

Waitress did not give us all options at the Happy Hour time. When asked, she did then give us the HH menu and got our order in on time. She checked back several times and provided the additional items we needed to make it a very good meal. Food was excellent and the carrot cake was huge and delicious. We shared the desert. Noise was moderate and conversation was easy. This is our #1 restaurant to go to for a good meal and easy conversation. We have found other places also have fairly good food but they seem to thrive on noise.

Waiter was a bit abrupt and not very attentive. Artichoke dip was excellent. We had the prime rib and it was a bit chewy and lacked flavor. Manhattan was top notch.

Overall a nice night out. They could us their game with kids. Gave kids crayons with nothing to draw on. Shirley Temples with no cherries. Could hardly read the photocopied kids menus. Lastly, they did not have anything special for Birthdays. Nothing written on plate and no candles.

Still, overall a good experience.

The food was great! The service was even better. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We have the short rib sandwich, salmon BLT and the bacon cheese burger. All were amazing and plenty of food. The Shawnee location is huge so a little earsier to get into at the last minute during busy times.

Excellent food and appetizers, Unfortunately it was Homecoming night and the place was filled with young ladies and being very chatty (little loud). Other than that, the food and service was excellent. I would imagine on a regular night the ambience of the place would be excellent.

Our family loves eating at the Hereford House- Shawnee! We have used curbside service and most recently dined on the shaded patio. The staff has been efficient and courteous. We love the center cut fillet, bacon wrapped medallions, meatloaf and grilled salmon. Sides of asparagus, baked and mashed potatoes are our favorites.

I really like the Hereford House and have gone to this location for years. Food is usually pretty good. Service will vary. I try to give a lot of grace right now since I know it is hard to find help. We had a reservation, but still had to wait 10-15 minutes. Ordered drinks when we sat down and they didn't arrive until after appetizers arrived - solid 15-20 minutes for two martini's. Ordered a $60 bottle of wine. Server struggled with the cork, didn't offer a tasting first. Not a wine snob by any means, but if you are going to offer some decent wine by the bottle, 5 minutes of training wouldn't hurt. It was a special occasion, and if I am going to have a $200 bill including tip I just want a little more.
